Welcome to the Hope Academy
Secondary School!

The Secondary School consists of a Middle School (Grades 6-8) and a High School (Grades 9-12). Secondary students are allowed more choices regarding their subjects of study. All students are required to master the basic skills we require for all graduates through a combination of required and elective coursework.

We want to see our students take initiative in their own education, take responsibility for their learning, learn with interest, and leave school with practical problem-solving methods. We have nine skills for graduating students that we strive to inspire such as ethical decision-making, reflective adaptation, communication, critical thinking, empathy, academic competency, collaboration, problem-solving, and willing service.

In everything we do, we try to keep our values in the forefront: each person, diversity, cooperation, growth, and transformation. We believe that God created and gifted each student uniquely as He intended. Therefore, we strive to provide opportunities to develop these gifts and talents by offering opportunities in art, music, drama, community service, and sports in a safe and inspiring environment. Academic life is punctuated by weekly assemblies, frequent celebrations, and student-initiated special events.

The Student Representative Council (SRC) leads the initiative in organizing events such as banquets and Christmas activities. Parents of our students help make the school’s plans come to life and are actively involved in Hope.
